Tristan has quickly become Joburg’s go-to designer for signature hospitality design and is the creative brains behind many of Joburg’s design forward restaurants, bars and nightclubs. For his CoLab feature he’s creating a slick and luxurious kitchen and lounge area aimed at his successful rouges-of-industry clientele. Visi will be partnering with Tristan du Plessis Studio to bring you this beautiful design and Fired Earth, the associate sponsor, brining to life Tristan's personal paint colour!
You can expect Tristan’s tell-tale lashings of black and grungy glamour, but this time they’ll be sharpened with hand brushed bronze and rock n’ roll inspired detailing. The fully specced, custom Blu_line Kitchen is the first of its kind and is bound to turn the heads of onlookers. His feature stand will also boast industrial style Diesel Living tiles from Avanga, iconic furniture and accessories courtesy of Cassina and show stopping lighting from Streamlight.
As part of our mentorship initiative, we’ve partnered him with emerging designer Tuami Zulu from Proportion Design whose work is known to be conceptually rooted. Together they are working on this space with dark, yet luxurious appeal.
Asked what we could expect of their CoLab feature, Tuami says: “I feel that Tristan and I will set the bar high.” We can’t wait to see the results of this intriguing collaboration.
